SALEM, Ore. — The public is invited to attend the next meeting of ODFW’s Fish Restoration and Enhancement Board on Friday, Feb. 29 and a field trip on Saturday, March 1 in Salem.

Created by the Oregon Legislature in 1989, the Fish Restoration and Enhancement Program is funded by a surcharge on sport and commercial fishing licenses and commercial poundage fees. The program’s seven-member citizen board reviews fish restoration and enhancement project proposals and makes funding recommendations to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission.

The Friday business meeting runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will be held at ODFW headquarters, 3406 Cherry Ave. NE, Salem. The agenda includes a review of the latest grant applications, an overview of the R&E Program budget and other program business. The meeting is open to the public and an opportunity for public comment will be provided.

A field trip to view local projects funded by the R&E Program is scheduled for Saturday, March 1 from 9 a.m. to noon. Members of the public may accompany the group using their own transportation. Persons seeking additional information on the field trip may contact R&E Program staff at (503) 947-6259.

Reasonable accommodations will be provided as needed for individuals requesting assistive hearing devices, sign language interpreters or large-print materials.  Individuals needing these types of accommodations may call the Information and Education Division at 800-720-6339 or 503-947-6002 at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting.
